Technical Concept and Technology Choices for Implementing a Tangible Version of the Sokoban Game
Paper i proceeding, 2017
This paper presents and discusses the technical concept of a virtual reality version of the Sokoban game with a tangible interface. The underlying rationale is to provide spinal-cord injury patients who are learning to use a neuroprosthesis to restore their capability of grasping with a game environment for training. We describe as relevant elements to be considered in such a gaming concept: input, output, virtual objects, physical objects, activity tracking and personalised level recommender. Finally, we also describe our experiences with instantiating the overall concept with hand-held mobile phones, smart glasses and a head mounted cardboard setup.
